Ralph brought up the idea of a face-to-face developers meeting yesterday. How about piggybacking on the December Chicago MPI Forum meeting?
1. The Forum starts 1pm Mon, Dec 9, and runs through ?11am? Thu, Dec 12 (it might be later -- like noon or something; I don't remember). It's at the Microsoft facility in the Aon Center in downtown Chicago.
2. Since the Forum will be there in on Thursday morning, Fab/Microsoft probably wouldn't mind booking us a room for the rest of the afternoon.
3. If we want to meet at all on Friday, there's a Cisco office in Rosemont; we have booked a meeting room for all day in case this is useful (we can cancel at any time). The Cisco office is quite close to ORD (it is not downtown). One option might be to meet on Friday until, say, noon or so, and people can easily fly out on Friday afternoon.
